I'm Rev. Dr. Jeff Saville of SoCal Christian Weddings, based in Temecula, California.
I am a traditionally trained and ordained Christian minister with 30+ years of pastoral experience in civilian churches and military settings (for 26 years I served as a Navy chaplain).
With that background, I can provide you with a ceremony that will reflect your spirituality supported by my authentic pastoral presence that will put you and your guests at ease. Upon your request for info, I will send you a very detailed quote for service, including a first/customizable draft of a ceremony, photos of different outfits I can wear (you can choose for me to wear a suit/tie, minister's gown, or something more casual for beach/backyard settings), along with information on how to obtain your marriage license, and more.
You can review all this info together as a couple, and then we can work out a time to meet in person or if distance is a concern, by phone/Facetime/Skype.
Working together, we will co-create a customized and highly personalized ceremony of about 20 minutes that you will cherish for the rest of your life! Services Offered When working with me, I will listen to understand your dream for your wedding ceremony.
I can help you write your own vows if you choose, and can include a sand ceremony, wine ceremony or even involve your children; whatever you want to make your ceremony just right. I also offer optional premarital counseling (relationship & communications coaching) in 3 sessions in person or by FaceTime/Skype.
After the ceremony, I provide you with a keepsake marriage certificate and the actual script used in the ceremony, plus I will ensure your marriage license is filled out correctly by your witnesses and filed correctly with the state. My other wedding officiant services include the following:
